As promised, I’m sharing my finished project today. To date, this is the most complicated quilt I’ve worked on, primarily because there weren’t a whole lot of right angles. 🙂 Once I got going, and started using the quarter inch foot, things got much better. And, I’m also proud to say that I FINALLY got the hang of binding the quilt… not only was I doing it completely wrong before, I was making it so much harder on myself!
Aside from totally loving the fabrics together, I must tell you that I’m now a Moda fabrics fan for life. The flannel is just so soft! I got to use a charm pack from the new(ish) Moda line Comma and this week saw some of the prints on the bolt and really wished I had an excuse to make something with them!
I used a pattern I bought at a quilt shop and the quilt did come together pretty well, it’s slightly smaller than a regular crib quilt size, so I figure it will make a nice play blanket for the little guy while his older brothers swim or play outside this summer.
And my favorite touch? My custom tags. I had been searching for a while after seeing a post by Dana about hers, but since I don’t make entire wardrobes or sew huge amounts of items to sell, I couldn’t justify the cost. I stumbled across this shop on Etsy and have been in love ever since they arrived in my mailbox!
What about you? Are you creating anything these days that keeps you up way past your bedtime or leaves your home a mess?
